According to KSNV-TV, at least three people are dead after a shootout and crash early Thursday on the Las Vegas Strip.

Sgt. John Sheahan told the station that five vehicles were involved in the crash, including a taxi that burst into flames and killed two people around 4:30 a.m. Thursday at Flamingo and Las Vegas boulevards.

Sheahan also tells KSNV that people in a Maserati and an SUV were exchanging gunfire before the Maserati hit the taxi.

The Maserati driver, the taxi driver and a taxi passenger were killed.

Three other vehicles were involved in the wreck, but Sheahan says the SUV was gone when police arrived.

At least three people were hospitalized, including a passenger from the Maserati.

Las Vegas Boulevard north of Tropicana and south of Harmon is closed because of the investigation. Portions of Flamingo also are closed. Six vehicles appear to be involved in the accident.
